“Let’s goooo!” Cole whined, he may be 17 but he could act like a 5 year old sometimes. “I love Katy Perry too, and I don’t wanna be late and have our places at the front taken.”
“Don’t worry,” My mom said, “the arena is only like 15 minutes away, we will be very early.” She grabbed her coat and I ran to the room to grab my cardigan, I would leave it in the car at the concert, im just bringing it because it will be pretty cold after. I hopped in the back seat of the car, I was suddenly really anxious and excited, what if she remembered me. No she wouldn’t possibly, that was eight years ago. I plugged my phone into the auxiliary cord and turned Katy Perry on shuffle. I had almost all of her songs, and knew all the words to all of them.
‘Part of Me’ turned on and we all started singing along, I’m a terrible singer, in my opinion. My mom says with some practice I could be a lot better. It’s frustrating, because my mom and Cole are such good singers. I guess my dad must have sucked at singing. I don’t know though.
We pulled up to the pretty packed arena at 6:15 and parked close to the front. I climbed out of the car, and we all walked into the building. We held up our tickets to the person guarding the doors. Happy birthday was scribbled across my ticket, but it was still easily readable.
“Well happy birthday Brooke.” He said, handing me back my ticket, “what a lucky day to be born on.” He said winking, and I was confused. I didn’t know what he meant by that but I just smiled and thanked him anyway.
Once, we were in my mom let me and Cole get ice cream and we walked into the huge arena. I believe it was called Tuscon Arena. This was the largest arena in Arizona. One of the guards let us under a little part under the stage into a reserved area for the people who bought v.i.p tickets. There was about 10 other people in there already.
“Enjoy the show.” Said the guard as he left.
“This is gonna be so cool.” Cole said excitedly as he looked around the arena.
“Yeah, seriously guys this is the best birthday present even thank you so much.” I said hugging them both for like the 10th time today.
“You’re welcome.” They both said and I turned and looked right up at the stage. Soon Katy Perry would be standing right there in front of me. Suddenly I like the 5 year old I was when I first met her, all giggly and cute. She was the nicest person I’ve ever met. Ever since then I had wanted to be her little sister like she had said.
“Who’s the opening act?” I asked my mom.
“Demi Lovato.” She responded.
After about 45 minutes the arena was almost completely filled. The lights went down a bit and demi walked onto the stage. She started singing ‘Give Your Heart a Break’ and she sounded really good. She sung about 5 more songs and it was almost 7:30.
“This is my last song of the night, I would like to thank you guys for being such an amazing crowd.” Demi said into the micro phone as everyone cheered at her compliment, she ended with singing ‘Heart Attack’ and the crowd went wild.
As soon as she walked off the stage the lights turned on and the arena filled with chatter, you could feel the excitement in the room. 5 minutes later, the lights shut off again. And the spotlight landed on the stage as Katy Perry rose up from the stage to the intro music of ‘Walking on air’. The crowd went wild when she was completely in full view.
